New Documentary Film to Discuss in Your Classes

A story of loss and separation, "Resilience" is a moving, character-driven documentary that takes a unique look at international adoption from the perspective of a Korean natural mother and her American son. A single story among thousands of stories untold, the film follows the remarkable journey of Myung-ja as she reconnects with her son after 30 years apart. Through their initial reunion on national television to subsequent meetings and departures, they attempt to build a relationship amidst family betrayal and the legacy of adoption. But with so many obstacles - language, culture, distance, and unspoken loss - can two strangers find a way to become mother and son?

Each year, thousands of children are sent to the West for adoption. South Korea has sent more children than any other country, an estimated 200,000 over the past 55 years. Despite being one of the world's strongest economies, it continues to do so. Though many families are created by adoption, many families are also separated.

There is a special Chuseok screening of the documentary film, "Resilience",
on Wednesday Sept 22 at 2pm!
